Decorating for fall can be so much fun, but do you ever grow tired of looking around your house and seeing the same decorations year after year? Don’t you wish that money grew on trees and each year, every square inch of your home could be decked out with the newest of fall decor? Well girlfriend, I’m here to tell you, it’s totally possible and the best part, you can do it without breaking the bank. All you’ll need is a little creativity and a hot glue gun. But, just in case the creative juices aren’t flowing just yet, here is super simple tutorial to create your own DIY pumpkin topiary.

What You’ll Need:
Acrylic paint (I first thought I wanted my pumpkins white, but later painted them orange, specifically Folk Art “Pure Orange”)
Hot glue gun
3 Pumpkins of various sizes (I found the larger pumpkin at a thrift store, but you can see one of the smaller pumpkins here.)
What To Do:
1. I started by removing the picks from each of the pumpkins. However, if you make your own, I recommend leaving them on there so you have something to hold while painting them.
2. Next, paint your pumpkins. I had originally planned to keep my pumpkins white, but they just seemed too stark, so I later painted them orange. The paint color is something that you can totally personalize and cater to your taste.
3. Once your pumpkins have dried, hot glue your pumpkins together starting with the largest pumpkin on the bottom.
4. Pop your pumpkin topiary into a vase of your choice.
